How to be more open about feelings?

There's this guy I started liking, but everything feels really intense. I've never experienced liking on this level before and it makes me feel really scared. Partly because someone really hurt me before. I'm lowkey anxious it's going to happen again, so I keep my walls up.

He's really open: just says he likes receiving messages from, gives me pet names from time to time, calls me pretty, etc. Always explains why and when he'll get busy.

I'm afraid if I show affection, those same feelings will get to me eventually. I'm scared to get to used to talking to him too much and getting attached and it'll end up with him leaving without saying a word. Because if someone whom I trusted for years and was close to me did this, what's stopping someone I haven't known for that long?
